Why Newborn Goodness Workshop?
1. STUDIO LIGHTING…. We offer a studio lighting workshop where most offer natural lighting. Studio lighting can be used not only for newborns but for everything in between. Simply put, studio lighting is consistent. We don’t have to worry if it rains the morning of our session, we have our constant light source. Travel on-location, still not a problem our studio light will easily transport. No more worrying about setting up in a small apartment without windows. Not to mention our light is constant so your skin tones will be PERFECT every single shot. We will show you just how flawless studio lighting can be. We’ve shot both and have found studio lighting is much more beneficial to keeping it all consistent and cutting down your workflow.
2. BUSINESS…. Yes, this is a newborn posing workshop but you will learn alot more than posing. You may pose a newborn like no other, but if you can’t market and run a successful business what good will posing do you? The business part of our workshop will help you with marketing, SEO and building your newborn network. We will give you the step by step process on how we started over from scratch; moving our photography business from one state to another, as well as establishing our baby plan and pricing. We will share the importance of business and how it can make or break you in this industry. 85% of our business in Atlanta comes from our clients as we are running a “true portrait business” and not just workshops. We will help you return home and get your business up and running. Yes…our BS in Business with concentration in Accounting comes in handy.
3. PREPPING FOR SESSIONS…. We will give you details to help prepare for your next session, preparing your moms and demonstrating how to get your newborn sessions completed in 2 hours. You can ask any questions, photograph everything for your portfolio – the floor is yours. You will sit beside me as we work through the poses… you will be there every step of the way. You will participate in posing from composite shots, floor shots, hanging and other poses you are interested in seeing. We will prep a session together, work on soothing techniques and most importantly show you how get the perfect image, all with studio lighting. All images taken at the workshop can be used to build your portfolio.

Still Have Questions?
Dad was traveling at the time of the session for the Hawks and we just knew we had to persuade them to come back for some family shots. We’re so glad they did and their son was just as peaceful the second time around. Can’t wait to see you all again soon!!
We would also like to thank the Tolliver Family for including a testimonial about their experience with us, we are deeply honored!
“Working with Laura was one of the best experiences I had in the first weeks of having my son. Her skill is incredible. She truly has a gift for working with newborns. Not only is she skilled she is so fun to work with. Not that you as the parent has to do any work. Honestly you could nap through the session if you could peel your eyes away from you child. The session is so relaxing I almost fell asleep. My husband was out of town for work and she insisted that he come back to get pictures with our son and I am so grateful she took the time to do it. The pictures she took are breathtaking and captured one of the most special times in our lives. If you are thinking about new born photos you must book with Laura you will be so glad you did worth every penny!” – The Tolliver Family
